The Ulticlip is a great way to gain extra retention from your holster when a belt is not desired, or if you are mounting your holster to a place where normal belt clips can not "hook" onto. The Ulticlip's cam design locks onto the top edge of your pants without needing to hook-on to your belt. You cannot pull the clip off until you release the cam-lock. You can also use the Ulticlip when more discreet carry is desired by attaching it to the top edge of your pants, behind the belt. Keep in mind that when this is done, the weight of the holster and firearm is riding on your waistband rather than a sturdy belt giving you varied results on how the holster rides. Note: This clip does not give your firearm more retention in the holster. It only gives your holster better retention when attaching to an object other than a belt.
